    Children's rights—to safety, justice, health, education, and freedom from war, poverty, abuse—are set out in the official 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Each double-page spread in this standout CitizenKid book addresses one of the rights, with a boxed quote from the UN document and detailed discussion and warm, bright acrylic-and-digital images of individual children across the world. Along with the messages of unity are clear examples of differences: an only child in Sweden appears opposite a boy in a big, extended family in a Malian village, for example. And the authors show that while all children have rights to food, water, clean air, shelter, vaccination, sanitation, and education, those rights aren't met equally around the world and between boys and girls. The extensive back matter includes book sources and websites, as well as topics for adults to discuss with kids. One puzzling question is not addressed: why has the U.S. not signed the Convention?
